criticism for two reasons. first, i think in terms of what he said about general stanley mcchrystal that's factually untrue and calls into question president obama's decision when he decided to get rid of stanley mcchrystal. if you're looking at who got the worst end in the bargain, the white house general mcchrystal or rolling stone. the white house got pushed into a war in afghanistan because of what the general, you know, advocated, so that to me -- then the other thing he was talking about was this interview rolling stone with with president obama which was hugely favorable. i didn't know what he was talking about except it dawned on me, obama was quoted as saying romney was a b.s.er and i probably can't say it on air. again, totally on the record thing. apparently that also offended mayor emanuel where he reacted quite strongly to my question. >> cenk: fascinating to me, because insight into how the media and government interplay i guess because michael, i mean, i would -- rahm emanuel does not react like this to every reporter. why would he to you? >> i thought about this a lot in
